Ingredients

  • 16 oz strawberries hulled and cut in half
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice I used 1 juicy lime
  • 2 tbsp honey or more to taste
  • 6-10 mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup gin
  • club soda to top off
  • 2 cups ice
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • lime strawberries and mint for garnish

Instructions

  • Blend the strawberries, lime juice, and honey in a high-speed blender. (You will want to drink this with a straw, but try to refrain.)
  • Rub the rims of two glasses with a slice of lime then dip in a shallow bowl of sugar. Add ice to glasses.
  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle 6-10 mint leaves with a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon. Then add 1 1/2 cups ice, gin and 1/2 - 3/4 cup strawberry puree mixture. Shake well.
  • If you prefer no seeds, you can strain this through a fine mesh sieve. I did not.
  • Pour mixture into glasses and top with club soda.
  • Garnish with fresh lime, strawberries, and mint.
  • Serve with a straw. You may have some leftover strawberry puree - pour it on top of vanilla ice cream.
